Now the X-Men films were good, don't get me wrong, but is with Wolverine. Why call the movies X-Men, because it seemed like Wolverine got all the attention in every movie. They took away the other character rightful places, and made them something else. My favorite character of X-Men was made into a cry baby pussy(which was Cyclops), who was the field leader, and one of the made X-Men in the comics. They barely gave him any screen time in any of the films, and killed him off the first 7 minutes of the third film.

Why did Marvel do that to the X-Men, whom was suppose to be a team, and not just a single character.

They did focus on Wolverine a lot.

They figure that the majority of those watching the movie don't read comics. Most people, however, have heard of Wolverine more than most comic characters.

They want to make money. That's the bottom line.

I blame Superman.

The original director for X-Men 3, left to direct Superman Returns. His replacement, was Bret Rattner. Brett was successfull with Rush Hour 1-3, but with an action/comic book movie?

He failed.

What was up with the Phoenix? And yes, Cyclop's death was messed up. As was Proffessor X's....

And, to be fair, Wolverine was used a lot. Still, they needed a lead role, someone who was a good actor (Jackman), and could serve as the X-Men's symbol/poster boy.

And c'mon, who doesn't like Wolvie?

Yeah how can you not like wolvie? ^_^

I don't like how much he is over-rated.



And stop whining about how your fav character didn't get as much screen time as you would have liked. Hell, my fav character doesn't even get as much page time as I would like.

:Darkrender: How is it Superman's fault? :huh: Don't you mean you blame the movie? And the director for leaving in the first place?

And why don't you stop whiney about grammar, and spelling.

Also, what about the other characters such as Nightcrawler, Colossus, Angel, and much more that didn't have any good scenes.

I meant more of a "You don't have that bad of a problem." When your eyes bleed from trying to read, there is a serious problem. And I was very disappointed in Nightcrawler and Colossus (who didn't even have a Russian accent). Angel couldn't be made into a cool character anyway, just based on the way they went about their business with the other movies. I hated how they took Shadowcat out of character. She's supposed to be a silly little girl who doesn't know anything about how to control her powers OR a super BA woman who will kick your ass if you say anything bad about her friends. And Beast was a failure too. I didn't really like Beast and I hated how they portrayed Juggernaut. They did get a few characters right though. Well, at least 1 and 2 got it right. I don't remember Scott being AS b**chy as he was when Jean "died". He was broken, but not to the extent shown in the movie.

That's what I mean. Not just Scott, but the other great characters. It's like they change them into crappier characters, so Wolverine can get all the fame and glory. Don't get me wrong, Wolvs cool and all, but he is not that cool. They ruined so many characters, heros and villians alike, just for the spotlight on Wolverine.

In general, movies almost never portray books (In this case, comics) as well as the book. That's why, if you've read the book before watching a movie, prepare to be disappointed.

Those who haven't read the book (Comics) will enjoy the movie because they don't know any better.

There are a whole lot more people out there that don't read comics than do so they went with what they thought would grab the non-comic reader's attention.

If they made these movies EXACTLY like the comic books, it probably wouldn't attract as many viewers to see the movie as would a more realistic, life like version of the movie.
